Artists are responsible for dropping off artwork to The Cheshire Union. If shipping is necessary, the Artist is responsible for shipping costs. Please label your accepted artwork with the title, artist name, medium and price. It is highly recommended that work be framed with a WIRED back - it looks nicer and is easy to hang! However, we will accept 2 Dimensional works unframed so long as they can be tacked to the wall using thumb tacks. Canvases can be framed or painted along the edge. 

 Artwork that does not follow the above stated protocol and/or differs greatly from submission images will not be accepted.
